Sample cover letter for Internship position at Credit Suisse


Equity research analyst

I am a currently in my third year majoring in Economics and Philosophy at Columbia University. I learned of your current internship opportunities through my school’s career services portal and am very interested in securing a position as an equity research analyst at Credit Suisse.

I have completed two internships at Mercer Consulting Firm where I spent the first year in their talent business segment and the second with their technology services practice. Through my experiences conducting research, sifting through resources, and presenting findings to senior employees, I have honed my presentation and analytical skills. Furthermore, by engaging with consultants in the office in work outside my practice areas, I also had opportunities to assist project teams with client-facing facing work, contributing to their strategy and problem-solving efforts.

In both of these previous roles, I was given a number of research assignments that required me to sift through vast industry landscapes with vague objectives of assessing the company’s relative positioning. With significant responsibility and little direction, these projects pushed me to grapple with digesting a lot of information and then being able to synthesize and relay it in a clear and concise manner. With such highly respected research and a commitment to cultivating independent thinkers, I am confident that working at Credit Suisse would allow me the opportunity to form and contribute my own unique perspectives to the company’s insights.

I would love the opportunity to discuss my qualifications and learn more about working at Credit Suisse. Thank you for your time and consideration.
